B: Browning Meet Donna and Doug Browning! They are both the heart and soul of Sweaty Bands! It all started when Donna Browning needed a headband that could hold up to her grueling workouts and busy working mom lifestyle—so she made one. Loving her hand-sewn finished product, she realized her headbands had what it took to become a global business—so she made that happen, too. Through late nights sewing in her basement, and weekends spent traveling to eCommerce seminars and fitness expos, Donna built a cult following for Sweaty Bands, and grew the business from a basement operation to the 30,000 square foot warehouse we operate out of today.

Sweating for Two: Pregnancy Workout Tips We’re expecting! Either will do pink or blue! Well, were not all expecting, but our designer, Becca, is and we couldn’t be more excited for her and her growing family! Already a Mom to her sweet girl, Mallory, Becca knows she has to live a healthy lifestyle not just for her, but her for both her youngin’s and husband. When it comes to pregnancy priorities, working out and getting your steps in come in a distant second to kicking up your swollen feet and relaxing. Surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly to some of you, exercise helps fight fatigue, ensure a better night’s sleep, and improve your overall experience with your bun in the oven. I’m sure the last thing you want to do while pregnant is look for some exercises that you are allowed to do while pregnant. Take some advice from our mother to be, Becca who discovered totally doable, pregnancy fitness routines that worked for her.
What’s a work day without an occasional dance party? If you’re anything like us, at Sweaty Bands, Music is KEY to any day. As Huffington Post puts it, “Music is one of the greatest ways to enter ‘mind-wandering mode,’ which can unlock creativity.” Our warehouse is known for their amazing playlists, and we didn’t want you to miss out on this fun! You probably think we have robots walking around the back of our warehouse, but in reality we have moms, high school students, and college kids shakin’ their tail feathers while fulfilling all your orders. When asking them what listening to music all day and every day means to them, we got some pretty funny responses. Some said that music puts them “in the zone” and is the “perfect distraction to get all their work accomplished!” Others said “Sweaty Bands music is why I wake up in the morning,” and “It makes me want to sweat and move." Our go-to DJ of the warehouse, Rihanna, said: “I love to see the joy and happiness that my music brings to the customers. “ To get a better feel about what goes on in the warehouse we interviewed Rihanna.
How we describe Rihanna: Unique, quirky, and smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy Peanut Butter A song that gets you pumped up: Ignition Remix by R. Kelly Fav. Sweaty Band: Colorwash Purple or Uncharted Territory Black Multi Fav. way to get sweaty: Hot Yoga Fav. memory in the warehouse: Singing Beatles songs with Jack Fav. snack: ANY food that the moms bring (usually pretzels—they always hit the spot) Fav. life quote: Try to understand before trying to be understood
